Maryland Correctional Officers Charged In Looting

After the 27 federal indictments and convictions of correctional officers as part of the gang takeover of the Baltimore Prison, you would think that Baltimore correctional officers would be good behavior. Evidently the free slurpees were too tempting.


Baltimore Correctional Officers Charged In Looting

By The Associated Press

Two Baltimore correctional officers were charged Wednesday with looting a downtown convenience store during unrest last month over the death of Freddie Gray.

Multiple news sources, citing the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, report that Tamika Cobb and Kendra Richard were caught on video taking merchandise from a 7-Eleven on April 25.

The store was one of several damaged and looted when protests turned violent over Gray’s death after he suffered a severe spinal injury in police custody.

The department says Cobb and Richard were assigned to facilities downtown. The two were placed on unpaid leave.

It is unclear if either Cobb or Richard has a lawyer.
